I have been tinkering with whatwillweuse.com for the past few days. Sorry for the confusion. Right now I have settled with a configuration that should carry us to mid 2011.
The Reasons for Change
- I’ve upgraded to “Comment Info Detector” plugin for the browser and operating system of the commenter. It supports Chrome and tries to discover Windows version and Linux distribution. My only complaint is when someone comments with a non-Safari WebKit browser, it may present as Safari.
- The former theme, with a Windows 7 inspired look, could not cope with Comment Info Detector login. I played with some themes, but they were too complex for phone-based browsing. I’ve ended up with a theme which reminds me of the bird logo of OpenOffice.org, an non-Microsoft office suite.
- My links have changed. If you get this blog via a rss feed, you may want to visit https://www.whatwillweuse.com with your favorite browser and operating system.
- Since I was making changes that could break things, why not tinker some more! I tried some plugins. Some plugins were a win. Other plugins created more breakage. If you have a bug to report, please comment on this post or email bethlynneicher AT gmail d0t com
My favorite plug in that came out of this was dynapoll.net which embeds hosted surveys in WordPress like below. The DynaPoll people are super nice who are genuinely curious about their user community. This is stuff that Microsoft would never be able to compete!
